MRI reveals no structural damage to Myles Garrett’s knee, should be available for Texans


CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns got good news Monday morning from the MRI taken of Myles Garrett’s injured knee.

“Nothing structurally significant,” head coach Kevin Stefanski said. “So we should have him available, definitely, for the next ball game.”

Garrett was limited to just 33 of the 72 defensive snaps in a 16-6 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders Sunday after suffering the injury in the first half.

He was examined during the second quarter in the medical tent before quickly returning.

Garrett is also playing through an ankle injury suffered leading up to their Oct. 25 win at Cincinnati and aggravated against the Bengals as well as an injury to his right hand or wrist.

“I think he is like a lot of our players, eight games into this thing, nobody is 100 percent and you have all sorts of nicks and bruises and those type of things,” Stefanski said. “He is a warrior. He battles through these things. Certainly, the rest should help all of the guys.”

Garrett has 9.0 sacks and four forced fumbles this season but saw his streak of games with a sack end at six straight.

With Garrett limited, Las Vegas had five drives of at least 10 plays, racked up 208 yards rushing and controlled the clock for 16 more minutes than the Browns Sunday afternoon in blustery winter-like conditions.

“I think it's obvious how much of an impact he has in these games,” Stefanski said. “Happy that… we dodged a bullet. We will just need him to come back on Wednesday and see if he is ready to practice. If he is not, we will have a few days here to rest and then get ready to roll next week.”
